Ladies and Gentlemen...We have a Winner!

Hello Friends! Today I am announcing the winner of the His & Hers birthday cards I created in celebration of MelJen's Designs third anniversary. So....drumroll please....let's give a big congratulations to


Bunny's comment said, "Hey, this is great. I've always said that one of the winning prizes from a challenge would be to receive the actual cards or get to pick 1 from the DT. This is wonderful. Thank you. The cards are so cute. To have a his and hers is perfect."

Thank you Bunny for visiting my blog. Please send me an e-mail with your mailing address and I will mail your cards right out. You can contact me at  thebuzzfrombarb@yahoo.com

And...I am taking another online card class...

When I created these cards, I was not aware of the new online class that was being prepared. I let out a little giggle when I received the e-mail invite. So, I just had to sign up for it! Yesterday was the first day of class. Our homework was to try our hand at using the same or similar elements, stamps, etc. to create a masculine and a feminine card. I figured why re-invent the wheel? So, here is another look at the cards that Bunny won...

I used the same digital stamp and the same layout for both cards, but by changing the patterned papers and the colors, I was able to create a masculine and a feminine card. "His" card has no glitter or ribbon and the sentiment is clean and simple. "Hers" has glittery frosting and tiny twinkles and lots of sparkle! The birthday greeting is playful and sweet and curvy.

This class is going to be a lot of fun! Click HERE to read more about it.

That's all I have to share today. Thanks for visiting!
